Paleo Egg Muffins (Spinach, Mushrooms, Sausage)

Posted by

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for a lot of people, it’s difficult to find the time to eat a healthy breakfast — or any breakfast at all! These Paleo Egg Muffins are the perfect solution — you’ve got veggies, meat and healthy fat all in a convenient little package.

The best part about these is how incredibly versatile they are — you can basically substitute anything you want for the ingredients I’ve used in this recipe: any meat, any veggie, any combination you can think of!

Ingredients:

8 eggs
1 cup baby spinach
1 cup sliced mushrooms (I used crimini)
1 cup sausage crumbles
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cooking fat/oil of choice (I used olive oil)
Olive oil spray
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a muffin pan with parchment liners. Spray each liner with a touch of olive oil spray to make it easier to remove the liners later.

  1. Add cooking fat/oil of choice to a saucepan over medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are lightly browned — about 5 to 8 minutes. Add in baby spinach towards the end of the cooking time so that it is lightly steamed.

  1. Add sausage crumbles to bottom of each muffin liner. Top with the sautéed mushrooms and spinach, filling each liner to about 2/3 full. Pour egg mixture over the top of the other ingredients, filling each muffin liner almost to the top.

Serving Notes: This makes about 10-12 muffins. They’re great served fresh, but they’re also a super convenient way to get a healthy breakfast when you’re on the go. I waited until these cooled completely and then stored them in the refrigerator, each in its own individual snack-sized Ziploc bag. You can reheat them in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or you can just eat them at room temperature like I did.
